Sunday..... walk in the park!

Today, I took the kids to the park in Provo to feed the ducks. They had a blast even though the ducks would not eat the bread that they were feeding them. Oakley had a fun time throwing the bread into the water and watching it float away. We ate lunchables while waiting for time to pass on! They then went and played at the park and go up and down the slide! Here are some pictures of them playing.

Terrible two's, Already?

I have been having problems getting Oakley to go to bed. I let him sit and cry and hit and scream tonight. He then went and got a toy and played with it for a bit.. then came out by me at the computer and sat and watched the news.. Oh what fun! He saw my camera and said, 'cheese mom, cheese' I looked at him and he was trying to take a picture of himself. I took the camera from him and tried to take a pic. He then turned his butt up at me. Then I got this one.=) I asked him to go and get me a blanket so that I could cuddle with him on the couch, a couple minutes passed and I did not hear anything from him. I went into his room and nothing, the bathroom and nothing, so I went into my room and found him asleep.. this is the cutest..
If you look close, he has a pen in his hand! Hmmm was he going to color or something?

Old McDonald had a farm!

We had family home evening tonight and we went to Aunt Shirley's and Uncle John's house. Their goats had just had babies so we took the kids to go and see them. It was way fun. Not only did they get to see the goats but the got to see the horses and the turkey! The kids got into the pen with the goats and chased them around. Trent even thought that he would try and catch a baby goat so that we could pet it.

Today was the first game of the season! It was SOO much fun. Even though the team that we played kicked our aces! What is with it with people who have to play to win and not for fun? Isn't that what it is supposed to be about? Well, I played and had a fun time! Except.... I was running to third base and the left fielder threw the ball and instead of sliding because I was one step away from the base and.... the third baseman does not know how to catch a ball..... it hit me in the leg.. OUCH! but who says all girls cry.. what is up with that... deal with the pain! And I can not believe all the people that are like.. OMG are you okay.. Yes I am fine.. I know how to deal with pain from a softball... okay.. well if I would have slid into third, like I would have if I played in SPANISH FORK.. because you know you get out if you don't slide..... It would have hit me in the head.. and then I probably would have cried! So here is a gross picture of my leg.... and it has only been an hour since it happened.....(from the time I took the picture)

On Sunday night, we were having fun with the camera. Here are some pictures that we took. They are way random and were fun to take!


NY Yankees unearth buried Red Sox jersey from new stadium

NEW YORK (AP)—A construction worker’s bid to curse the New York Yankees by planting a Boston Red Sox jersey in their new stadium was foiled when the home team removed the offending shirt from its burial spot.

After locating the shirt in a service corridor behind what will be a restaurant in the new Yankee Stadium, construction workers jackhammered through the concrete Sunday and pulled it out.

The team said it learned that a Red Sox-rooting construction worker had buried a shirt in the new Bronx stadium, which will open next year across the street from the current ballpark, from a report in the New York Post on Friday.

Yankees president Randy Levine said team officials at first considered leaving the shirt where it was.

“The first thought was, you know, it’s never a good thing to be buried in cement when you’re in New York,” Levine said. “But then we decided, why reward somebody who had really bad motives and was trying to do a really bad thing?”

On Saturday, construction workers who remembered the employee, Gino Castignoli phoned in tips about the shirt’s location.

“We had anonymous people come tell us where it was, and we were able to find it,” said Frank Gramarossa, a project executive with Turner Construction, the general contractor on the site.

It took about five hours of drilling Saturday to locate the shirt under 2 feet of concrete, he said.

On Sunday, Levine and Yankees CEO Lonn Trost watched as Gramarossa and foreman Rich Corrado finished the job and pulled the shirt from the rubble.

In shreds from the jackhammers, the shirt still bore the letters “Red Sox” on the front. It was a David Ortiz jersey, No. 34.

Trost said the Yankees had discussed possible criminal charges against Castignoli with the district attorney’s office.

“We will take appropriate action since fortunately we do know the name of the individual,” he said.

A spokesman for Bronx District Attorney Robert Johnson said Sunday he did not know whether any criminal charges might apply.

“It’s typical Yankees,” Castignoli told the Boston Herald on Monday. “It’s not like I snuck in there. It didn’t do any structural damage. I didn’t put anyone in harm’s way.”

Castignoli, 46, said he became a Red Sox fan during his childhood in 1975 when he idolized slugger Jim Rice.

As construction began for the new Yankee Stadium, Castignoli said his union got after him to work on the project. The Red Sox fan was reluctant.

“I would not go near Yankee Stadium, not for all the hot dogs in the world,” he told the Herald.

But he relented, and hatched the plan to plant the jersey. He said he worked just a single day at the stadium project.

“It was worth it,” he said.

Levine said the shirt would be cleaned up and sent to the Jimmy Fund, a charity affiliated with Boston’s Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Along with that, New York will send a Yankees Universe T-shirt, which is sold to benefit Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center.

“Hopefully the Jimmy Fund will auction it off and we’ll take the act that was a very, very bad act and turn it into something beautiful,” he said.

I read Emily's blog and thought this was a good idea... Weekend update! On Friday after work, I came home to find a messy house.. oh wait it has been like that for a while! I have been getting ready to do a yard sale and with the weather on Friday I decided that I would wait a bit to do it. I have been cleaning my house and trying to get things together.. I have piles and piles of clothes that no longer fit the kids, and toys galore! Does anyone else feel that they can sit and clean and clean you walk out of the room to clean another and come back and it is a mess again? My word, what is up with kids these days! I am going to make them put all their toys in their room and that is the only place that they can play! So on Saturday, I was woke up by two little kids saying Mommy go outside and play and lets watch 'cars'. I got up and realized it was going to be an amazing day! I called my mom and dad and asked they would bring me down the lawn mower so that I could mow the lawn. (man, you really do take for granted having a husband.. I wish someone would come and do this for me weekly!!) I went out to mow the lawn and here come the kids in mismatch socks, and winter coats. I started laughing.. not only were they wearing coats but they both had shorts on! (only in Utah will you see this!) Oakley brought out his bubble lawn mower and started mowing the lawn that I had just done. He is so cute.

Since the weather was being good to me, I decided to take a run to the dump and get rid of some garbage that was piling up. I called my dad and asked him if he would bring me a wheel barrel so that I could move the remainder of the rocks that were delivered to my house and put them in my driveway.. again where was a man! I have not worked so hard in one day.. not only outside, but I cleaned my house again! and again! But it was nice to be outside and enjoy the fresh air and sun! We even got a little red!

Today, we got up and went to church. It felt like we were new to the ward again! We have not been to our church in over a month.. Crazy.... I have some of the funniest kids! Oakley was eating fruit snacks during sacrament meeting and dropped one. He looked at the guy behind us and said 'get it'. The guy looked and him and then to the ground and back to his book. Oakley let out a sigh got off the bench, walked around picked it up showed the guy and put it in his mouth then walked around and sighed again. (in his mind he thought that the guy was crazy because he did not pick it up and listen to him!) The guy behind us looked at the ground again, then back to his book!

When we got home it was nap time.. Oakley would not go to sleep for the life of me.. I was tired and sore from yesterday and Harley was already asleep. He wanted to wrestle.. man was I wore out. I had hamburger thawing out so that we could make a good dinner. Harley woke up and wanted a bowl of cereal before we ate. I let them eat a bowl and while Oakley was eating he fell asleep. Here are some pictures of him. It was so cute, He was even feeding himself while asleep and would not let go of the spoon!

Why me!!?

Why is it that kids will only watch a couple movies until you are going NUTS? Oakley has watched Cars 5 times today.. I swear I can hide it and he will find it.. I think that I have the whole show memorized. He even has everything Cars.. he has all of the Cars that you can think of.. even a book to read before bed! If it is not Cars it is Nemo!... I went through the Nemo stage with Harley when it first came out.. She would watch it nightly.. Now with Oakley... ugh..

Harley will fight with Oakley to watch some of her Favorite shows.. It is usually one of these two... Ella Enchanted or the Harry Potter Series.. Any one have any ideas on other shows that I can get my kids to watch!? I am seriously going to throw the dvd player away!

Today at daycare.. yes I know alot happens at that time! Elizabeth, Emily's daughter cut herself and needed a bandaide.. Oakley being the stinker that he is, started crying and wanted one also. He then got one and Emily asked where he wanted it.. He wanted it on his 'owie'! Here are some pictures of him!
Don't mind his Halloween sweats! Harley picked his clothes out for today and when I went to change them, they both got mad!

Poor Guy...

I was getting ready to start eating my dinner tonight and I got this text from Mike saying look, Oakley fell up the stairs.. I think that he is going to have a black eye.. And then the picture came.. Poor guy.. but how do you fall up the stairs and end up with a swollen blue eye? Beyond my imagination.. I could never figure it out!

I then pick the kids up from Mike at the gas station like we always do.. (yes it is convienant) NOT! Oakley gets in the car and says Owie mommy.. I said did you fall and hit your eye. He shook his head and then pointed to his eye. As Mike is telling me that he fell down the stairs too and bonked his head.. My thought.. what is going on... But then again what do I do.. It could have happened at my house too.. Here is a picture as he was going to bed.. His eye is swollen more and way bruised.. I can't wait to see what it looks like in the morning.. Or do I want to?m (don't mind the dirty face. he has a thing with chocolate!)

Only in Utah.....

I received this as an email today and started laughing.. It is so true!

A man was being tailgated by a woman on Foothill
Boulevard in Salt Lake City.

Suddenly, the light turned yellow just in front of
him. He did the right thing, stopping at the
crosswalk, even though he could have beaten the red
light by accelerating through the intersection.

The tailgating woman slammed on the brakes and leaned
on the horn. She opened her window, stuck her hand out
and made a gesture, all the while screaming in
frustration as she missed her chance to get through
the intersection with him.

As she was still in mid-rant, she heard a tap on her
window and looked up into the face of a very serious
police officer.

The officer ordered her to exit her car with her
hands up. He took her to the police station where she
was searched, fingerprinted, photographed, and placed
in a cell.

After a couple of hours, a policeman approached the
cell and opened the door. She was escorted back to the
booking desk where the arresting officer was waiting
with her personal effects.

He said, 'I'm very sorry for this mistake. You see, I
pulled up behind your car while you were blowing your
horn, flipping the guy off in front of you, and
cussing a blue streak at him.

I noticed the 'Choose The Right' license plate holder,
the 'Families are Forever' bumper sticker, the 'Follow
Me to Sunday School' bumper sticker, and the
chrome-plated Angel Moroni emblem on the trunk.

Naturally, I assumed you had stolen the car.'

Weekend Project

This weekend I was sitting home watching myself some t.v. I was watching a show on the fashion industry and the fashion show in New York. As I sat there and was watching these girls sit and sew and design their clothes (although some of them I would NEVER purchase or think of wearing) I got the wild hair that I do at times. I went to the fabric store and checked out some of the patterns that they had there. Luckily, all the patterns that I really liked were on sale for less than 2 bucks.. who could not take up that offer... So with the 2 dollar patterns I had a 40% off coupon.. I found some really cute fabric.. Yes, as you can tell it is baseball's and it is red! I have sat and decided when to start making this dress.. So during conference I sat in front of the t.v. watching and sewing.. Here is the start and finished product. I can not wait to make a pair of shorts for Oakley to match!!
This picture is not a good one of the dress.. I had to tie the strings with out a body to measure them on. It is really cute! I can not wait to let Harley see it! (and the other ones that I have been making since finishing this one!)

Ok... so today at work I said something about forever.. and my boss started singing this song! She has every word memorized. I started laughing at her. So I had to pull it up on youtube and share it with you all.. Remember the days of FULL HOUSE! (wait, i have to find a boyfriend first and he has to agree with it!)

And it begins!

I am so Excited! I get to sit and watch my favorite sport for the next 7 months.. Not only am I a fan of the best team ever.....

But I get to watch this guy!

I know.. I know! I love to watch the Red Sox. I have been keeping updated on how well they have been doing so far.. What it has only been two games.. So not only am I going to be able to watch my favorite team... but I have to watch their RIVAL and not that I am to excited about watching them.. Yes the Yanks... I will have to watch it because all of my friends and my brothers are Yankee fans...
This is the only reason to watch the Yankees play!

I can not believe I just put those two teams on the same post... Ugh.....=)

Things I want to.....

Well since it is 9:30pm and I am sitting here, alone. The kids are in bed. So what do I do? Blog! I was checking out all the blogs that have been updated! Thanks to google reader! I can keep updated without having to click on every blog that I look at.. It is a one click easy read! So Hillary had just posted this and I thought that it was interesting, so here I am reposting it!

1. Things I want to start but haven't started
School. I have went to a couple months of cosmo school but then things happened and I got married.. then the little kids came along. Now that I am single again, maybe it will happen soon! I do need to go to school!

2. Things I want to change but haven't changed
Same with Hillary, I dont want to be to negative BUT if I had to change anything... HMMM... why would I? I have learned from all my mistakes and trials in life.. It has been a learning experience!

3. Things I want to stop but haven't stopped
Yuck.. nasty habit of biting my nails.. I have tried this since I was YOUNG and can not seem to get over it. The only time that they are not being bit is I have the 'fake' nails on!

4. Things I started but haven't finished
Scrapbooks of my kids! Harley has 2 but nothing since she was 3.. she is now 5 1/2... Oakley has A page.. and it was from when I was prego... and yes he will be 2 in a month and a half.. think I need to get going with it?

5. Things I want to do but haven't done
Go on a vacation for myself! I want to go somewhere that I can just relax with someone special and have the most amazing time ever. Not worrying about my kids, knowing that they are in good hands, but I also have the time to myself...

6. Things I want to say but haven't said
No names here and not getting into detail.. But there are some people that have been in my life and they still kind of are due to my kids... but they REALLY need to know what happened.... thats all!

7. Things I want to learn but haven't learned
Hmm that is a tie between learning another language and learning how to play a musical instrument!

8. Feelings I have but haven't expressed
Telling my parents that I do love them and appreciate all that they do for my kids and me. They really do alot and I don't know how to thank them for the help that has been given in the last year and a half... but here.. thanks mom and dad!

Pay it Forward

I'm participating in a Pay It Forward Exchange. Want to play? I will send a handmade gift to the first three people who leave a comment on my blog requesting to join this Pay It Forward Exchange. You will receive your gift within a month from leaving your comment, I promise! The only thing you have to do in return is pay it forward by making the same promise on your blog. Apparently this has been going on for over a year. It sounded like fun so I am helping to keep it going! Remember, you have to have a blog and participate on your site too. (leave your email, and I will delete it following, then I can contact you with what information I need!) thanks kira!

Time to potty train?

Today at the babysitters Erika and Oakley are both there. Erika is going through the whole potty training stage, and yes I have been trying to get Oakley excited to potty like a big boy and go with out a diaper! Emily sent me and email letting me know that he is being silly and sitting on a stool and pretending to pee saying 'PSSSSSSSS' then ' all done'! He is so funny. He knows what he is supposed to do but it is getting all parties involved and doing the same thing.. I.E. me, his dad, and Emily the babysitter. I guess I am going to have to get him some big boy underoos so that may get him excited. Here are some pictures that Emily sent over.

I think that he forgot that he needed to take the underwear off to sit on the toilet! and Yes, Erika and Elizabeth had to be there to help out!

Here is a video of him making the sound.. He is so funny!
